Economic Security Project Action
The time has come to consider new, bold ways to make our economy work again for all Americans.
We live in a time of historic economic uncertainty. The dramatic increase in unreliable work and the concentration of wealth in too few hands threatens to undermine the foundation of the modern social contract: the idea that if you work hard and play by the rules, you can get ahead in America.
The Economic Security Project challenges this status quo by catalyzing ideas that build economic power for all Americans. We serve as convener, strategist and funder. We disburse grants, identify gaps, develop communications research to inform the movements and coordinate events and convenings to encourage investment and action from others. We aim to support the emerging leaders in the economic justice field and ensure they have the networks, know-how, and money to succeed.
We’ve identified two fights we think we can win: a guaranteed income that would provide an income floor for all Americans and anti-monopoly action to rein in the unprecedented concentration of corporate power.
